Scripps Clinic cardiologist John Rogers, MD, appeared on KUSI TV recently to discuss sudden cardiac arrest, a condition caused by an abnormality in the heart’s electrical system.

It’s estimated that thousands of teens in the United States die each year due to sudden cardiac arrest. The Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation, in partnership with Scripps, provides more than 10,000 free cardiac screenings each year to local teens.

The KUSI report, "Program Screens Local Teen Athletes for Potentially Deadly Condition," is not available at this time.
